How long is the typical lifespan of a printer-photocopier?

Printers and photocopiers are generally robust pieces of office machinery, with high end models being designed for very large volumes of printing. With frequent servicing and the use of manufacturer approved ink, paper and other consumables, there is no reason why a printer or photocopier won’t have a considerable lifespan, even up to 10 to 15 years.


Some parts, such as drums, rollers, belts and print heads may need cleaning or even replacing (which may be included in your maintenance contract) but this is cheap when compared to buying a new machine.
